Spartacus Speaks


SARS-CoV-2 was not the product of natural zoonosis. It was not the product of an accidental lab leak, either. It was the product of deliberate, willful bioterrorism by what I've come to call the Biodefense Mafia.

This Biodefense Mafia grew out of an expansion of USAID, DARPA, BARDA, and DTRA-affiliated civilian biolabs, both in the US and elsewhere, thanks to the Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction program and Robert Kadlec's expansion of biodefense after Amerithrax. That initial expansion of the Biodefense Mafia involved Kadlec awarding rigged contracts to Fuad El-Hibri's company, BioPort, for anthrax vaccines. BioPort was a spinoff of DynPort, which, in turn, was spun off from the American mercenary company DynCorp in a partnership with Porton in the UK.

Yes, the same DynCorp that Kathryn Bolkovac blew the whistle on in Bosnia for sex trafficking of young girls, the same DynCorp that continued to receive US State Department contracts even after soliciting “dancing boys” in Afghanistan, and the same DynCorp whose OV-10 Bronco turboprops loaned from the US State Department for coca eradication crop dusting with RoundUp in Colombia happened to have the same tail number as a helicopter mentioned in Jeffrey Epstein's flight logs, N474AW, on one of the aircraft.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Robert Kadlec again awarded rigged contracts for COVID-19 vaccines to Fuad El-Hibri and Emergent BioSolutions, which is what BioPort renamed themselves to. Emergent BioSolutions came under fire due to the scandalous condition of their vaccine manufacturing facilities and the poor quality-control practices exercised there.

Throughout the 2000s, Michael Callahan was part of an effort by the US State Department called the BioIndustry Initiative, authorized in the Defense and Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2002, where US scientists would visit various former Soviet biowarfare labs in Russia and discuss technologies the Soviets developed that could be patented, commercialized, marketed, and “peacefully” used in drugs and therapies. He was on the ground in Wuhan in 2019 and 2020, as DARPA's “Man in Wuhan”, suggesting that the H2 blocker famotidine might be useful for treating COVID-19, based on observations of patient data.

From 1999 to 2008, a watchdog group called the Sunshine Project, led by Edward Hammond, tracked the alarming increase in construction of biosafety level-3 and level-4 labs in the United States throughout the 2000s, as well as the handling of dangerous pathogens by researchers with little oversight. The Sunshine Project was forced to disband due to a lack of funding.

In 2007, a US House of Representatives committee questioned why the NIH had allocated a billion dollars toward the construction of BSL-3 and BSL-4 labs in the preceding few years. Former Michigan Representative Bart Stupak said, and I quote, “We need to assess the need before writing the checks to build them”, end quote. Former Texas Representative Joe Barton stated to the committee that, despite apparent gaps in federal oversight, the committee should keep in mind that biodefense work is critical to the nation's health and security.

The GAO's report at the time stated that since the 9/11 attacks, the number of BSL-4 labs in the US had risen from 5 to 15, and that there were nearly 1,400 BSL-3 labs in the United States. Of the 12 agencies the GAO surveyed, none were responsible for tracking the number of BSL-3 and BSL-4 labs in the United States. “Consequently, no agency is responsible for determining the risks associated with the proliferation of these labs,” the GAO report stated.

In 2014, Frank L. Smith III published a book entitled American Biodefense: How Dangerous Ideas about Biological Weapons Shape National Security, chronicling the rise of the civilian biodefense network in the United States and the shifting of biodefense funds from the Department of Defense's budget to that of the Department of Health and Human Services.

All of these people missed something crucial that has now become apparent in hindsight. Ever since 9/11 and Amerithrax, there has been a massive expansion of the American biodefense network, into an unaccountable, opaque Biodefense Mafia, allowing corrupt and hostile interests to take hold of the reins of a system that was supposed to protect Americans from weapons of mass destruction.

The United States Agency for International Development, long suspected of being a CIA slush fund, has a program called EPT, or the Emerging Pandemic Threats program. One component of this program was a project at UC Davis called PREDICT, or EPT-PREDICT, built upon global “One Health” partnerships, with the stated goal of detecting pathogens that pose a risk of zoonotic spillover. This would later diverge into the so-called Global Virome Project, headed by one Dennis Carroll, at USAID.

Two NGOs closely linked to EPT-PREDICT were EcoHealth Alliance, the President of which is one Peter Daszak, whose name you, the listener, may already be familiar with, and Metabiota, headed up by Nathan Wolfe.

Peter Daszak is the son of Bohdan Daszak, who, in turn, was a member of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists, or OUN. His father was a Nazi sympathizer and likely collaborator.

In 2008, Peter Daszak and Aleksei Chmura published a rather bizarre letter entitled “A Fall From Grace To... Virulence?”, where he compared zoonotic spillover events to Bruegel's painting The Fall of the Rebel Angels.

In this letter's first paragraph, he states, “In Bruegel’s painting of The Fall of the Rebel Angels we are witness to a tumbling maelstrom of falling rebel angels outcast from Heaven. Within the fray stands St. Michael in gilded armor, and his angels-at-arms serenely in pale albs, and almost as if threshing grain, hewing and striking down this inconceivable rout. The main focus of the image and what draws the eye is the extraordinarily creative mélange of creatures; mixtures of human, animal, plant, and inanimate objects slashing and stabbing as they fall from the great battlefields in the skies. They pour down in a vast column that stretches infinitely from the luminous sun; they fall from the light to the darkness. The column of falling angels is so numerous that it widens to encompass the whole lower canvas as it approaches the viewer. With a start, then, we realize that Bruegel intends that we too are in the thick of this. Will we succumb to the multitudinous horde? Are we to be cast downward into chthonic chaos represented here by the heaped up gibbering phantasmagory against which we rail and struggle?”

If Peter Daszak were a poet by trade, this would be perfectly acceptable prose. However, he is not a poet. He is a man charged with running a quasi-NGO that funnels DOD, USAID, and HHS money to biolabs abroad that are engaged in dual-use research of concern. If a firefighter wrote at length about the beauty and magnificence of flames, we might be inclined to question his mental state and fitness for the role of fighting fires.

In a presentation in 2015, Peter Daszak “reiterated that, until an infectious disease crisis is very real, present, and at an emergency threshold, it is often largely ignored. To sustain the funding base beyond the crisis, he said, we need to increase public understanding of the need for MCMs (or medical countermeasures), such as a pan-influenza or pan-coronavirus vaccine. A key driver is the media, and the economics follow the hype. We need to use that hype to our advantage to get to the real issues. Investors will respond if they see profit at the end of process, Daszak stated.”

From 2014 through 2017, there was a moratorium on federal funding in the US for gain-of-function work on pandemic influenza strains, MERS, and SARS, due to the obvious public health threat posed by these pathogens if they were mishandled. Emails between EcoHealth Alliance and staff at NIH show that EcoHealth Alliance were granted a highly questionable exemption to this moratorium, which proves that EcoHealth Alliance were indeed engaged in gain-of-function work.

Furthermore, documents acquired by DRASTIC Research show that in 2018, EcoHealth Alliance proposed a project called DEFUSE, for DARPA’s PREEMPT program. This project would have involved inoculating bats in the wild with recombinant polyvalent SARS Spike proteins, allegedly to reduce the risk of zoonotic spillover. DARPA rejected the proposal, citing concerns over the work constituting dangerous gain-of-function research.

When the COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan began, and Peter Daszak realized that this might bring scrutiny upon EcoHealth Alliance, EPT-PREDICT, and UC Davis, he immediately went into damage control mode.

Before publishing the Lancet Lab Leak Letter along with a couple dozen scientists, Peter Daszak took the time to email Ralph Baric, a SARS coronavirus expert at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, to tell him not to sign the letter so that, and I quote, “it has some distance from us and therefore doesn’t work in a counterproductive way”. Regardless, 26 of the 27 people who signed the letter had links to the Wuhan Institute of Virology and clear conflicts of interest anyhow. Peter Daszak acted as a Facebook fact-checker and a WHO investigator on the ground in Wuhan, where he investigated himself and found himself not guilty. On Twitter, he actively promotes the natural zoonosis theory of COVID-19’s emergence. The Chinese Government promotes the notion of a virus called RaTG13 being the precursor of SARS-CoV-2. There is just one problem with this assertion. RaTG13 is fake. A fraud. The gene sequence was forged to create a semi-plausible ancestor for SARS-CoV-2 to support the natural zoonosis theory.

A couple months after the Lancet Lab Leak Letter was published, Peter Daszak emailed Hongying Li at his own organization, and Tammie O’Rourke at Metabiota, telling them to keep certain sequences out of their submissions to Genbank, because they would “being(sic) very unwelcome attention to UC Davis, PREDICT, and USAID”.

Metabiota is an NGO closely linked to EcoHealth Alliance, EPT-PREDICT, and the Global Virome Project. They were funded by Rosemont Seneca, Hunter Biden’s investment firm. Their president, Nathan Wolfe, is the author of the book, The Viral Storm: The Dawn of a New Pandemic Age. He was a member of EcoHealth Alliance’s editorial board, and a member of DARPA’s Defense Science Research Council before it was dissolved. He was also an associate of convicted child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell and was one of the founding citizens of Maxwell’s fake ocean charity, TerraMar. In his book, he named Boris Nikolic, the executor of Jeffrey Epstein’s will. In 2014, Metabiota’s Vice President, Mary Guttieri, emailed Joe Biden and said that Metabiota could “leverage our team, networks, and concepts to assert Ukraine’s cultural and economic independence from Russia”, which is a tacit admission that Metabiota is a politically motivated organization.

Many of the laboratories that Metabiota work with, such as the biolabs in Ukraine, receive funding from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, supposedly for “viral surveillance”. The Lugar Center in Georgia is a site of extremely suspicious activity, and journalists like Dilyana Gaytandzhieva have been harassed by security guards while investigating it. Some suspect that the Defense Threat Reduction Agency have been using facilities connected to the Cooperative Threat Reduction program to conduct zero-accountability biowarfare research abroad, without the scrutiny it would attract if conducted in the West, and using NGOs like EcoHealth Alliance, Metabiota, and Labyrinth Global Health to launder the money for the work.

In February of 2022, Andrew Huff, the former Vice President of EcoHealth Alliance, stated that in 2015, Peter Daszak told him that he was working for the CIA. Huff also stated that EcoHealth Alliance engaged in fraud against the US Government, including timecard fraud and contract reimbursement fraud. When Huff brought these issues to the attention of Peter Daszak, Aleksei Chmura, and CFO Harvey Kasdan, Harvey Kasdan went home from work, had a heart attack, and died that night.

Andrew Huff also posted an In-Q-Tel presentation dated to October 2015, as well as a grant application with Peter Daszak listed as the principal investigator and dated to 2013, entitled “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence”. One of the key personnel listed in this application was Shi Zhengli, a leading SARS-like coronavirus researcher and the director of the Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Shi Zhengli co-wrote a paper with Ralph Baric in 2015 about bat coronaviruses and their potential for zoonotic emergence. Due to his whistleblower activity, Andrew Huff has been harassed in his own home by drones flying over his property.

According to a leaked confidential Material Transfer Agreement, Ralph Baric, Anthony Fauci’s “man in North Carolina”, took delivery of “mRNA coronavirus vaccine candidates developed and jointly owned by NIAID and Moderna”. This was on December 12th, 2019, before anyone even realized there was an outbreak in Wuhan. Moderna and fact-checkers claim that this was a MERS vaccine, however, there is no published evidence of Moderna working on a MERS vaccine alongside NIAID before the COVID-19 outbreak. Also, this establishes that Ralph Baric was involved in validating coronavirus vaccine candidates for Moderna. Ralph Baric’s lab also tested and validated the $3,120 a course Remdesivir, which is toxic to the liver and kidneys, ineffective against COVID-19, and chemically very similar to the much less expensive GS-441524, a gray-market drug for Feline Infectious Peritonitis, which Remdesivir metabolizes into in the liver. Remdesivir was marketed over GS-441524 by Gilead because it was more patentable and therefore a more attractive product for them to sell.

Moderna developed their mRNA technology platform with DARPA funding, alongside considerable investment from venture capital firms. From the beginning, it was practically a DOD product. The CEO of Moderna, Stéphane Bancel, was formerly the CEO of BioMérieux, a medical diagnostic company founded by Alain Mérieux, a French billionaire with links to Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party. Alain Mérieux was given a Chinese Reform Friendship Award in 2018 for his collaboration with the Chinese government on the construction of the P4 lab at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Investigators have discovered that SARS-CoV-2 contains a gene sequence the reverse complement of which is only found in a Moderna patented MSH3 mutant cell line in a BLAST database.

Back in 2010 and 2011, DARPA and DTRA funded research at MIT’s Lincoln Labs that led to the creation of Todd Rider’s DRACO antivirus, a universal protein antivirus biologic drug that consists of an apoptosis induction domain coupled to a double-stranded RNA detection domain. DRACO was successfully tested in mice and protected them from influenza. However, Dr. Rider’s grants fell through, and he wasn’t able to attain additional funding. Eventually, he resorted to begging for money on Indiegogo, but this also fell through. Yes, that’s right. Over a decade ago, DARPA and DTRA developed what is essentially a 100% effective cure for basically all pandemic viruses, but rather than continuing the research and eventually taking it to human trials, they let the virus equivalent of penicillin slip through their fingers.

Since 2013, DARPA have been carrying out the BRAIN Initiative, a neuroscience program involved in engineering brain-computer interfaces for the US military, alongside general neuroscience work. One of the other programs that sprang out of this was called N3, or the Next-generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology program. Far more advanced than Elon Musk’s Neuralink, the N3 program proposed the engineering of injectable, ingestible, or inhalable nanotransducers, which would travel to the brain, cross the blood-brain barrier, enter the brain tissue, and allow the human brain to interface directly with computers with two-way communication, using RF, electromagnetic fields, ultrasound, light, or other forms of energy capable of penetrating the skull. This “wireless” brain computer interface would obviate the need for a craniotomy, such as with a Utah Array or Neuralink, or other microelectrode-based brain-computer interfaces. A craniotomy and peeling back a flap of the dura is a highly invasive procedure that risks brain hemorrhage and meningitis, and is not ideal for healthy subjects, making microelectrode array brain computer interfaces impractical at best.

These wireless brain-computer interfaces are proposed as a means of allowing soldiers to have drone video feeds piped directly into their visual cortex, or to control prosthetic limbs with their thoughts. However, any “neural lace” capable of doing these things would also, necessarily, be capable of crossing the far lower bar of manipulating mood and affective states, such as suppressing a soldier’s emotions to reduce their aversion to killing, or creating a permanent sense of euphoria in civilians who are forced to live in squalid conditions. A neural lace is not just another, more advanced means of interfacing with technology. It is, in fact, the ultimate tool of both tyranny and torture.

One of the lead researchers at Battelle involved in their N3 offering, known as BrainSTORMs, Gaurav Sharma, was also involved in DTRA’s blood-brain barrier program, to look for viruses and nerve agents capable of permeabilizing the blood-brain barrier and enhancing delivery of drugs across it. SARS-CoV-2 Spike, the protein produced by the mRNA and viral vector vaccines, is scientifically proven to be capable of permeabilizing the blood-brain barrier.

One researcher in Tel Aviv, an acquaintance of Joe Biden known as Ehud Gazit, is an expert on using amyloid as a self-assembling nanotechnological agent. Incidentally, SARS-CoV-2 Spike is highly amyloidogenic; it can act as the nucleus for amyloid fibrils. Amyloidosis and tauopathies are associated with serious age-related diseases, such as Alzheimer’s Disease.

In January of 2020, Charles Lieber, a bionanotechnology researcher at Harvard, was indicted by the DOJ for his links to China’s Thousand Talents Plan. He was taking money from the Wuhan University of Technology against the terms of his government grants. The cover story for his work was that he was conducting research into silicon nanowire batteries for the Chinese, but no one can recall him ever working on batteries of any kind. His published body of research involves the blending of living cells with silicon nanowires, to monitor cellular activity and to stimulate cells and modify their behavior. Numerous papers of his describe technologies that could be used as the foundation of a brain-computer interface. Accordingly, Charles Lieber was a recipient of funds from numerous military think tanks, including the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Office of Naval Research, as well as the National Institutes of Health, and MITRE.

Charles Lieber was also a colleague of Robert Langer, an MIT nanotech drug delivery expert and one of the co-founders of Moderna. They co-wrote a paper together on implantable “cyborg” human heart tissue scaffolds that could monitor heart activity remotely and relay that information outside the body.

Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum, Yuval Noah Harari, and numerous other technocrats associated with the World Economic Forum and the Club of Rome, as well the RAND Corporation, and numerous other adjacent think tanks and policymakers, have openly made statements about transhumanism, brain-computer interfaces, wireless body area networks, the internet of bodies, and the internet of bio-nano things. What they describe is essentially the collection of human health data with implanted monitoring devices, over Internet of Things infrastructure, using 5G base stations and the like. Klaus Schwab’s books, such as Shaping the Future of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, explicitly mention DARPA, the BRAIN Initiative, and the implications of mass human augmentation.

Numerous bioethicists and neuroscience researchers, such as Jonathan Moreno, James Giordano, Charles Morgan, and Armin Krishnan, among many others, have expressed concerns about the militarization of neuroscience and neurotechnology, as well as the capacity of brain-computer interfaces and other implanted devices or neuron-disrupting substances to violate human privacy, modulate mood and behavior, and strip people of free will.

From all these assembled facts, we have put together a hypothesis. There is a global conspiracy by Neo-Malthusians to cull the world's population with a lethal amyloidogenic and autoimmune-reaction-inducing toxin mischaracterized as a vaccine. To pacify the survivors, who would otherwise be horrified at the genocide of their neighbors, this is accompanied by another, directly related and concurrent plot to mind-control millions or billions of human beings worldwide, with advanced in-body surveillance and brain manipulation technology developed at DARPA-affiliated laboratories and elsewhere.

This was to be accomplished by engineering a pandemic pathogen, creating a climate of terror around it using psychological warfare and psychological torture techniques, and then despotically mandating yearly or bi-yearly vaccinations for it, incorporating whatever formulations of new culling, tracking and manipulation technology the conspirators wished. This was to be incorporated into existing Internet of Things networks as a form of “Smart Grid” for monitoring all human activity in cities, worldwide, altering human behavior, and manipulating public opinion and rendering existing political systems utterly moot, as part of an overall initiative towards engineering “Smart Cities”.

This brazen conspiracy is being conducted by globalist technocrats who wish to supplant national governments with a New World Order, eliminate cash and replace it with a central bank digital currency that is centrally monitored and controlled and tied to an implantable ID, and to bring about a Neo-Feudalist caste system where private property and human rights are abolished or sharply curtailed, and mankind is subjected to the brutal tyranny of a small cadre of utterly unaccountable rentier-overlords.

The perpetrators of this farce are guilty of fraud, racketeering, genocide, high treason, and crimes against humanity. These are capital crimes. These people already have millions of deaths on their hands. The conspirators know this and will do anything to escape punishment, up to and including characterizing freelance investigations into their activities as misinformation or foreign influence operations, bullying private citizens and investigative journalists, censoring social media, and suppressing public protests.

The free citizens of the world do not accept technocratic tyranny, and we do not accept the New World Order.
